The Body Table – Inside You 2015

An oversized projected person allows visitors to explore key regions of the human body and discover the many relationships that microbes have between themselves and with their hosts on or inside a person. Ecological concepts such as competition, mutualism, and niche adaptation are explained by video overlay in the context of the human body by making comparisons to such phenomena in the natural world.

Visitors interact with the sensing surface to activate layers of three-dimensional models, showcasing the inside of the human body. Seventeen simultaneous users can explore the sensing surface to activate the content.
